IPG LightWELD 1500
Handheld welding system LightWELD 1500 is a universal solution for industrial segment by IPG Photonics – a leader in the area of high-power fiber laser production. The system is user-friendly, simple in operation, and enables to weld a wide range of metal thickness including ultrathin workpieces.
Compared to conventional MIG and TIG welding machines, LightWELD 1500 exponentially increases speed and quality of welding providing maximum efficiency and enhanced results without distortion, deformation, undercuts or burn-through. LightWELD 1500 products require almost no post-processing, significantly reducing their cost of production.
Owing to ongoing IPG innovations, high performance paired with small size and weight enables to increase output power and decrease form factor.
Compared to conventional welding, laser one is a lot faster, increases system performance and decreases production costs of finished parts.
Simple to operate
Intuitive control system does not involve long and expensive personnel trainings.
Rich Library of Modes
IPG experts have developed 54 modes for the majority of standard metals and thicknesses. Additional 20 user modes are provided for customized and more detailed settings.
Integrated beam oscillation system (Wobble)
Select of weld width (up to 5 mm) and oscillation frequency of output beam ensures high quality and allows for welding parts with poor edge fit-up.
Wide production capabilities
LightWELD processes materials with a wide range of thickness. Moreover, the system makes it possible to weld dissimilar metals and parts with poor fit-up.
Complex safety system is in charge of safe operation and reduces possibility of laser injuries. Handheld welding gun is equipped with 2-step trigger (Ready / Gas – Welding) and a sensor to control contact with the surface.
